Federal Requirement 4.1 (Student Achievement) requires institutions to disclose such information during the Fifth-Year Interim Report and the decennial reaffirmation of accreditation. The disclosure below is intended to satisfy SACSCOC policy requirements in between routine compliance certifications. This information is updated prior to the beginning of each academic year.
